Giveaway Winners

Christmas CD by The Blind Pig Gang

The handy dandy number generator helped me pick winners for the 2 giveaways held earlier this week here on the Blind Pig.

The winner of Pap and Paul’s new old Christmas cd is:

#28 Joy Newer who said: The Little Drummer Boy. My first born has passed on, but this was his favorite. Can recall him singing that over and over, brings back precious memories to me. After he passed I heard in my head I will be home for Christmas, so that now is my favorite. Love all of your music, and have adopted your family into my life. Grandmother Joy.

The winner of one of Granny’s crocheted hats is:

#15 Dolores who said: Gosh! This was interesting reading. Unfortunately, I never had any living Grandmas, so I missed that part of my growing up. I hope that I am leaving some grammy memories for my granddaughter. This was a rather nostalgic read for many people.

Joy and Dolores-email your address to me and I’ll get your giveaway prize in the mail. And all the rest of you-stick around for more giveaways during this month of Thanksgiving!

    I didn’t win this time but I have the ultimate trophy hanging on my office wall (cubicle) at work. It is a little pin of a mastiff mounted on a piece of wallpaper, framed by a skilled artisan and is signed by the artist. Does Granny sign her crochet work? Do Paul and Pap sign their CDs? I think not! Granny’s crocheting and Pap’s singing will be worth a lot more in the future, but nothing even close to my little prize. I was thinking of putting it on eBay for $350,000 but reconsidered. I will save it for my grandsons. I am thinking it might appreciate many times beyond my amateur estimate.

    I was honored to win one of Granny’s hats — came in handy more than once 🙂 I also was blessed with a surprise gift of a CD when I was at sad, sad time of loss. I have listened over and over and shared it with other family members. I said thanks then but I’d like to say it all over again — most sincerely. I often leave the site up after I read it each day and just listen to music. Pap, Paul and the Blind Pig gang are good companions.

    Tipper,
    Congradulations to Joy and Dolores
    on their win.
    About the middle of next week, get
    your Snowcream bowl and stuff ready
    cause we’re gonna see some snow.
    To keep from having that terrible
    Brainfreeze, I’m gonna eat with a
    little spoon this time…Ken

    Well, by Ned, those two winners are lucky. Now I am lucky to find that Ms. Sheryl mentioned the SHOW at EXPO in K-town! We have a visit with our two WONDERFUL grandsons on our to-do list for this beautiful day. Ifin they say yes, we just might make that EXPO show.
    Tipper I hope you done mentioned my “Fiddler of the Mountains” signing up in Hayesville on the 15th and 16th. I am trying to ‘enlist’ my brothers to come play they fiddler and bass guitar on the Square at Cutworm’s store front in the afternoon (Friday or Saturday)but I ain’t got a response yet. But I got faith that somebody in Clay, Towns, Union or Cherokee County who plays and loves mountain music will come by and play!
    Best regards,
    Eva Nell

    Congratulations to the winners. What they’ve won in pure love. Every word and every note of music is filled with an uncommon pure love, as is every stitch of Granny’s crocheting.

    Tipper,
    Congratulations to the winners! I know they will be tickled pink with their gifts…
    I am up so early so I can get myself a headstart on today! Why!
    Well, my two granddaughters and two daughter-in-laws are going to the 31st Annual Christmas Fair at the Expo in Knoxville today. Supposed to be craft demonstrations, crafts for sale and I hope companies showing off their new products…Last one will be my favorite to see. I just love to learn how to use some of these new fangled paints, sparkly stuff, fabric and ribbons and yarns.
    If I happen to find and buy a new paint product, crocheted craft idea, unusual sparkly pinecone, or something else I can’t live without, I will borrow your idea and tell him (my better half) I won them in the drawin’….LOL
    Thanks Tipper,
    Happy, happy and Merry, merry right here before Thanksgiving…
    I am very thankful to be going there with my sweet kin!
    Wish you were here, too. I am so looking forward to Christmas this year!
